Little Deer

Hope all my UK friends had a lovely bank holiday weekend. The sun was shining and it was warm! It felt great to finally be out of winter jumpers and into pretty summer clothes. However the weather has turned cold again and it's been raining all day!

I treated myself to the latest issue of Craftseller magazine over the weekend and couldn't wait to get started on my own version of the adorable deer featured on the front cover. The deer in the magazine was made out of felt but I had some pretty fabric in mind that I thought would look great. I adapted the pattern so I could sew the fabric right sides together to hide the stitches and keep the edges looking neat. 

Just needs a head

I didn't want to add the hat, stars and feather like the one in the magazine so I left those out. However I did add a cute bow around the deer's neck. 

Ready for the tail!

I really enjoyed making this and already have more fabric choices planned. You can buy the deer from my shop on folksy here
